light and dark – curve fitting to a winter landscape

i’ve spent quite some time working on curve fitting in R (open-source software for statistical computing), recently. while most of that work went into scientific data at university, i was also inspired to try other uses, and here’s a not-so-scientific by-product of spending time with R:

light and dark - curve fitting to a winter landscape

i used a winter landscape and fitted nonlinear curves to sunlit and shadowed treetops.
the result is quite aesthetic, isn’t it?
